Shamsuddin has described iReport 3.7 inside out in his latest book ,this book is perfect for new learners. Best thing about this one is , that it has explained each option available in best manner possible
making it a delight to read.
What I liked about this one is one is in chapter named “iReport in NetBeans” ,author has not only explained the process of using iReport with NetBeans but has also explained basic “how to” for NetBean.
Last few chapters including “Crosstabs report” , “calling Reports from Java Apps “,and iReport in NetBeans are beautifully written , making it valuable for those who have previous experience in making reports and perfect for beginners.
